Sibling lockdown mixtapes volume 6
My sister Carla has some truly stunning songs, many of which I hadn't heard before. A fantastic playlist.
Meanwhile my brother Ross reminds me how good a songwriter Paul Heaton is before taking on us on a fantastic journey through incredible songwriters in just 10 songs - ending with Prince, Bowie and Stevie Wonder! What a song to end on!
Lastly, I'm pretty pleased with what I pack in - soul, indie, electronic pop and lastly some truly sublime electro courtesy of Underworld and Orbital.
